Some people have multiple roles, some of which are simultaneous, others which change over time. Currently if you login to do an assessment for someone else the system doesn’t recognise you and although you can choose to log your completion of assessments for others this isn’t integrated with your main portfolio.
Also there is no capacity to select a “default role” so you have to annoyingly select your current role every time you log in.
Small annoyances become big annoyances over time!
Currently there is no facility to track progress visually, or to add key dates like the ARCP to help manage how many more assessments you need.
I hear that in the Foundation ePortfolio there is now a timeline, but I haven’t seen it myself – is it any good?
Ideally there would be some auto-populating of key dates dependant on your stage of training and speciality, with the ability of the trainee and supervisor to add dates themselves. In a dream world, dates of training days could be added by the speciality administrator and would automatically appear on the timeline. Then popups or colour changes could alert the user to the imminent approach of the ARCP.
